Lets start this going again - 'Shes filing her nails while their dragging the lake' - I think that would be the great Elvis Costello and 'Watching the Detectives'

Try this one:- 'The screen door slams, Mary's dress sways' ??

That'll be Thunder Road by a certain Mr.Bruce Stringbean, I'll wager.

How about?

Pink Floyd - Eclipse, from Dark Side of the Moon. One of the most played pieces of vinyl I own.

Mmmmm, I'll try to think of something a bit harder.

The singer-songwriter is male and his best known song is concerned with the English capital.

It certainly would. And the song is from his "Easy" album.

I'm sure someone must know it.

The song is "Take it Easy".

It starts, "I took a little day trip, found myself in France, .........".

And the verse from which I quoted:
I learned a lesson or two that night, several the next day
Like how a man should carry himself when he goes far away
In spite of it all, I'm happy, you can call me a crazy fool
But I had a lesson or two that night I could never have had at school"

If you are wondering, yes it's a bit naughty.
